RE: Welcome to the Web Platform Project!

Hello All!

I'm Eliot Graff, I am a former English professor who specialized in distance learning. I am now the lead for the Internet Explorer developer docs and the IE Dev Center at Microsoft. I'm also one of the people who've been working on webplatform for about a year now, helping develop the information architecture among other things. I am SUPER excited to see the community warm up to WPD and look forward to working in collaboration with everyone around the world to try and shape this into the best resource for web development that it can be. You can find me in WPD as Eliot-MSFT and in IRC as eliot.

I used to be a web developer by trade, but now I'm on the other side of the ecosystem helping to make the web platform as awesome as it can be. In the run up to the site announcement  I've done a lot of the work on templates and semantic media wiki stuff (see for a slightly out-of-date overview). You can find me on the site and in IRC as "jkomoros".

I'm also really interested in the content architecture side, any possible standardization hooks, testing and compatibility, enabling translations... ok, well, pretty much every part of this project.... so I'm interested in those conversations too.
